When you get into a road traffic accident, and you suffer injury, the consequences are always troublesome. They may range from a bit of pain from a few cuts and bruises to blood loss, multiple fractures, organ damage, and other severe injuries.
Road traffic accidents in Musselburgh can also lead to compensation claims, even for minor injuries – and the payout you receive if your claim is successful will depend on how severe your injuries are. Provided the accident was caused by someone else, and you got injured, you could claim.
Accident Advice Helpline can help you now
If you’ve been in road traffic accidents in Musselburgh, you can call our 24/7 hotline and speak to an advisor. Even you’re reading this at 4am, you can call us – it really doesn’t matter!
When you call, you will be able to give your details to the adviser who answers the phone, and you can be assured of the best possible service from them.
All our staff members adhere to a strict code of conduct underpinned by integrity, dependability, reliability and accountability – and our advisers are doing the job they do because they have excellent communication skills.
What happens when you’ve given us your details
When you have told the advisor what happened to you, they will give your details to our team of no win, no fee* solicitors if you qualify for compensation.
You can actually check your eligibility yourself, if you wish, by going to our website and taking our 30-second test – you’ll find out very quickly!
Your solicitor will work on your behalf, dealing with all the relevant agencies and aiming to secure you a payout. You probably won’t have to go to court, because most of the claims we deal with are settled without the need for a court case to go ahead.
What you need to do after road traffic accidents in Musselburgh
At the scene, when you’ve fulfilled your legal obligations by staying there and exchanging contact details and insurance details with the other driver – and notifying the police if necessary – you should ensure you gather some evidence.
Take photos, because you will have a record of the damage to your vehicle, any damage to any property (whether someone’s personal property, such as their garden wall, or street furniture, such as bollards or lampposts) and the road conditions.
Also gather witnesses’ contact details. Their account of what happened could be important to you, not only for the usual insurance claim but also in the event that you decide to go ahead with a claim.
